One win away from the title.

That’s the position the Greenwich High School girls volleyball team is in after it topped Trumbull, 3-0, in Thursday night’s FCIAC semifinals, held at Fairfield Ludlowe High School.

The top-seeded Cardinals defeated Trumbull by set scores of 29-27, 25-12, 25-20. Greenwich advanced to Saturday’s 4 p.m. FCIAC title match, where it will face second-seeded rival Darien. The Blue Wave moved on to the championship match by sweeping Ludlowe, 3-0, in Thursday night’s other semifinal-round matchup.

Coached by Steve Lapham, Greenwich has a record of 21-1 on the season and is 32-1, dating back to the 2020 season. The Cardinals advanced to the FCIAC Tournament semifinals by registering a 3-0 home win against Warde.

The Cardinals, of course, are having an outstanding season and here are some photos of the team in action throughout the course of the season.
